The market of off-road pickup trucks is ready to receive some major redesign for the 2020 when it comes to Toyota brand. Besides the popular Tacoma and Tundra, another model that has been keenly anticipated among the fans has definitely been the 4Runner truck, especially its top TRD Pro trim level. Here is whats new for 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD PRO.
The 2020 Toyota 4Runner and its top trim level TRD Pro are expected to bring some serious changes and updates in terms of exterior design. The 4Ruuner has been known as a powerful off-roader that comes as a four-door SUV. Its 2020 model will use a body-on-frame architecture made of high-strength steel and lightweight aluminum. This truck should also improve its suspension system significantly. It has been said that we should expect it with Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System that will additionally improve its already great off-road performance. Besides that, the new 4Runner TRD Pro will largely increase its towing capacity. When it comes to exterior, the new 4Runner TRD Pro will mostly apply the design language seen on the Toyota Tacoma, but it has also been compared to Toyota Highlander in some ways. Its aggressive off-road features should be soothed by more refined and elegant ones. Also, the truck might be available in some new body paint choices.
Inside the 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro, we should once again expect its Tacoma-inspired cabin. The fans will notice lots of changes and upgrades, especially in terms of technology. The center console should reveal a larger 7.0-inch infotainment touch-screen that will provide some of the latest high-tech features and connectivity options such as navigation system, audio system, dual-zone climate control, Wi-Fi hotspot, Android Auto and Apple Car Play. The company will use leather and other high-quality materials inside. The front seats will even offer the options such as heating and ventilation. The 2018 model has shown a lack of advanced safety technologies, but we hope that the upcoming model will show some improvements in this area.
- new platform
- enhanced suspension system
- excellent off-roader.
- no major changes under the hood
- higher price.
It hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, but the 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro should reveal no major changes under the hood. Instead, this model should keep its current 3.5-liter with 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque and 4.0-liter V6 option with 270 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. These will probably be paired with a five-speed automatic transmission, but a manual might be available as well. We are still waiting for more exact information.
2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD PRO Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2020 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro could be expected in late 2019. Being the most expensive trim level, the TRD Pro should start around $42,000.
